About 500 MacNab Ken Soble Tower EnerPHit 
The Ken Soble Tower is considered North America’s first EnerPHit retrofit of a residential tower, and the largest residential Passive House retrofit in the world. Measures implemented, including a high-performance building envelope and upgrades to its mechanical systems, led to an impressive 94 per cent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. The revitalization of the Ken Soble Tower created 146 new affordable, comfortable, and climate resilient living units for seniors.
